Prescription best used in life and in writing.
I see this old slate board every morning (every time) I enter the living room and walk towards the kitchen. It hangs by the kitchen windows, where it presides over much of my activities these days. Anyone with a very young tot knows the kitchen becomes your second home (preempting my desk space many days *sigh* ). Another topic for another day.
I gave myself this Rx many years ago when I worked in the Mental Health field. The lettering I used often in my daily logs and note taking and the Rx I used everyday when dealing with both clients and the MH system which I worked. One day at a time.
Keeping this simple message up in my home now, reminds me to stay focused and work on what is at hand and not obsess about things I can not control or whats still so far ahead for both my little family and for my writing. It reminds me that big and important jobs can become so much more manageable when you just focus on one day at a time.
Good writing folks.
